Poet Rosanna Warren in Saratoga Tomorrow

Rosanna Warren, daughter of poet and novelist Robert Penn Warren (All The King's Men), will read from her work tomorrow at Skidmore.

Full schedule of free readings:

Warren visited us in Albany in 2011 to present the volume, Ghost in a Red Hat (2011), a collection of poems that “contemplate wreckage and sorrow” in family life, Hurricane Katrina, the Civil War, and the Trojan War. To a large extent, the collection represents a conscious effort to internalize and articulate the pain experienced by other people, both real and imagined. Warren asserts in one poem, “as long as the danger lived outside / me I couldn’t write it.”
